Police officers are keen for any witnesses to come forward and contact WDC Windsor at Ipswich CID on 01473 613500.
The offender is described as being aged in his 20s and of mixed race. He was driving a black new looking Vauxhall Corsa and it is possible he had one or two women with him.
This is the second serious attack on Suffolk's roads within the last five weeks. A 28-year-old woman working as a carer for Ipswich based Classic Care was travelling to her last home visit patient in Cornard Tye when a man plunged a four-inch knife into her stomach on an isolated road on April 3.
He accused the woman of cutting him up before he stabbed her. She had a three-hour operation at Colchester General Hospital for the knife to be removed.
